Rashford Makes Big Mourinho Admission

With Manchester United’s penalty record recently becoming a big talking point, Marcus Rashford has revealed a certain conversation with former boss Jose Mourinho that led to the Red Devils winning a few more spot-kicks.

Rashford: My Biggest Regret

There has been a debate as to why the 20-time English champions win so many penalties, after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently pointed out that United has been awarded more spot-kicks under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than the Reds have since 2015.

Rashford has now weighed in on the conversation, revealing that United players began to win more fouls in the box following advice from ex-boss Mourinho.

See below where Rashford ranks among United's best-paid players: 

"As a forward line, we want to go and score goals, when you are making runs in behind or dribbling with the ball and if you see a challenge coming, you don't want to get tackled because you are looking at an opportunity to score a goal," he told the FWA.

"There is no way you are going to let somebody take the ball off you, so, for me, it is just a case of us wanting to score goals and the teams wanting to defend goals and penalties can happen. There have been times when we have probably not got penalties.

"I remember when Jose was manager, there were five or six times where I should have had a penalty and Jose ended up saying to me: 'If you are not savvy about the way you do it, then you are not going to get given it.'

"After that, we started to get a few penalties. It was something in terms of development you have to learn that and understand it."
